Sadly, there are only 3 small barrels of this lovely cuvée. Hints of blood orange on the nose, the palate opens with a limestone mineral tension. Then, a graceful harmony develops, with aromas of acacia honey and clementine. A lovely floral nature, very fine and beautifully long.

The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseignières shows a slight reduction on the nose, a light menthol note emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, notes of citrus peel and orange zest, and a touch of mint toward the finish, which fans out nicely. Very composed. Drink 2024 - 2042

Mid lemon colour. The bouquet is a little more powerful than the Puligny Trézin, more intensity, less floral. Smoothly ripe but with a kick at the back, this delivers more than just village quality. A wine of great distinction.
Domaine Marc Colin
One of our favourite Burgundy estates, Domaine Marc Colin produces year-in and year-out, some of the most balanced, expressive wines in the Côte de Beaune. Their strict principles of using only natural yeast, having a slow, cool fermentation and little ‘débourbage' (draining the juice fromits sediment) contributes to their pure, fresh flavours and impeccable balance. The domaine is now run by brothers Pierre-Yves, Damien and Joseph who took over from their semi-retired father several years back. The "changing of the guard" has had little effect on the wines. The only notable difference is less stirring of the lees in order to retain the wines' mineral undertones. And as aresult, they are as delicious and sincere as ever.
Puligny Montrachet is known as the most delicate of the white wine appellations south of Beaune.Its wines tend to be linear and mineral offering delicate floral and orchard fruit aromatics. Its village and premier cru vineyard area total slightly over 200 hectares but almost half of them are premier cru making them one of the highest proportions of quality vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. Several grand cru vineyards are present, the most notable being Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachetwhich it shares with neighbouring Chassagne, but it does have the extraordinary Chevalier Montrachet and the tiny Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet all to itself. There are a handful of red wines grown, but they tend to be quite light and need to be drunk in their youth.
